Nature's Great Healer
Wheatgrass juice is a complete food with no toxic side affects. It contains all the vitamins and most of the minerals needed for human maintenance and well-being. It is also a complete protein with about 30 enzymes and is approximately 70% crude chlorophyll. It acts as a natural appetite suppressant so usually adding wheatgrass juice to your diet will cause you to control your weight.
WHY SHOULD I TAKE WHEATGRASS? Wheatgrass earned its reputation from people with terminal illnesses who took it at the eleventh hour of their lives after conventional medicine left them with no hope. Even if you don't have a terminal illness you can take wheatgrass as part of a long-range prevention and health maintenance program.
Wheatgrass helps with ailments like cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, gastritis, stomach ulcers, pancreas and liver troubles, asthma, glaucoma, eczema, skin problems, constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, colitis, fatigue, female problems, arthritis, edema, athlete's foot, anemia, bad breath/body odor, and burns. In addition, a wonderful first aid for red eyes, wax in ears, congested nasal passages, bleeding gums, tooth pain, sore throats, and inflamed mucous membranes.
Studies show that within two weeks of drinking wheatgrass juice, the blood is detoxified and the immune system strengthened. These changes lead to more energy and an improved ability to combat and reverse illness. All cures start with detoxification. Wheatgrass, with their living chlorophyll, act in our bodies like detergents- purging the liver, scrubbing the intestinal tract, and oxygenating blood. Grass chelates and removes heavy metals from our bodies.
WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT WHEATGRASS (even after all of the above)? Wheatgrass contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is anti-aging. Chlorophyll is condensed sunlight.
All vegetables are food factories. Each excels in different nutrient areas. Because eggs have 12% protein, meat 17%, and whole leaf grass 25%, we can define wheatgrass as a protein food.
Wheatgrass is a complete life sustaining food. Based on animal studies, if you had to choose one food for survival, it ought to be wheatgrass. After all, grasses are the primary food for domestic and wild grazing animals and some pretty large ones at that (cows, horses, goats, sheep, buffalo, deer, and giraffes).
Wheatgrass is a wonderfully balanced source of nutrients. Excellent for all minerals major and minor, it is especially high in calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as trace minerals such as zinc and selenium. All are important for cardiovascular and immune system function. Grass is a source for all B-vitamins including folic acid, pantothenic acid, an abundance of choline, and is a vegetable source of B-12.
Wheatgrass Testimonials Not bad for just one shot of wheatgrass a day! What would happen with two? And this is after only 3 weeks! I'm sure many positive changes are taking place internally that I am not yet aware of. I'll keep you posted!
AMAZING TESTIMONIAL: I will start out by qualifying myself as having a weakened immune system. In 1995 I had a cold sore on my upper lip that my doctor confessed as being the worst infection he had ever treated. In 2006 I was diagnosed with Burkett's Lymphoma and given a 50/50 chance of survival if I followed the directions of my oncologist. These directions comprised exclusively a protocol of chemo over six months in the hospital. The last week clinging to life in the ICU, I was released. I began a series of PET scans every three months. In December 2007 a scan came back positive with something deep in my chest. Three months later that same area had grown and I was sent to see a thoracic surgeon. The prognosis wasn't good. The lymphomas were between the pulmonary veins, heart and lungs and because this made for a risky surgery he postponed the biopsy until after having another scan. I figured I was going to die. I felt sorry for my four year old daughter. I told a friend of mine and she insisted I look into alternate forms of therapy and introduced me to a man she referred to as "Organic Jack." I called Jack and made an appointment to meet with him. He told me there was a way to get well and it included doing three things. First, change to an all organic diet which I had already done. Second, increase my intake of vitamins A, C, E with selenium and finally, start drinking wheatgrass juice. He gave me some wheatgrass juice to try. I thought it was terrible and it upset my stomach. He said that was due to all the toxins and it would eventually get better. My choices were clear, give up and do nothing or risk a small amount of money, time and effort. I could die or risk getting to be there for my daughter. I bought a juicer and several flats of wheatgrass from Jack, and vitamin supplements from a local nutritional center and began juicing and drinking as much wheatgrass as I could. On July 3rd after the next scan my oncologist called me and said "I don't know you must have 14 lives because you're all clear." It's been nine months now and no more cancer. I will conclude by saying that the monthly outbreaks of the cold sores I've had for the last ten years have ended as well. Truly amazing! If you want to live longer call Organic Jack and start juicing today.

P.S. I truly believe that had I not visited Jack a few months ago, my daughter, Paige, would not have a father today! Thanks, Jack.
Testimony #12 - "My Testimonial: Overcoming Cancer"
Organic Jack of Newcastle, the Organic Farmer with a heart and the knowledge to go with it, I salute you! You have helped save my life from a long bout of Melanoma in the lymph system. You convinced me to start juicing with Wheatgrass 4 months ago, and this has been instrumental in my recovery from one of the most devistating cancers. According to my most recent P.E.T. scan (which can track malignancies), my body is now clean from all metastasized cancer cells! Alleluia!
Jack, you were the source of my eating organic fruits and veggies and Wheatgrass whici I buy from you regularly. It is amazing how much more tasty they are compared to the store ones, many of which are undoubtedly contaminated with field chemicals which harm our bodies.
Yes, I do use other products, namely, herbal foods, certain fruits and veggie greens. I also take prescribed amino acids, ensymes, and immune builders from my Nutritionist. Why? I believe cancer is fought from the inside, not the outside with Chemo (poisons) and Radiation (burning). The latter destroy good tissue and do not allow our immune system to strengthen. Not to mention the horrible painful side effects; nausea, vomiting, etc. Natural remedies do not cause any such side effects.
Most babies, born healthy, possess healthy immune systems and a blood system which is primarily not acidic but rather in an alkalized medium and cancers cannot live in an alkalized state. What has occurred in the past 50 years in the U.S. is this nation has manufactured and eaten so many contaminated foods, the system is failing (placing our bodies in an acid state) us and many diseases are plaguing us. Just look at the hospital parking lots. Most of them are in the hospital due to poor nutrition.
Finally for me the goal is to build up my immune system to stave off the toxic cancers. This is the only real prevention. And to track our progress we need adequate, reliable, and an informed holistic doctor to assist us in order to define exactly which foods are best, given our particular situation.
Lastly, if you want an organic farmer and nutritionist for advice and guidance and understanding of your issues (whatever they may be), contact Jack. His experience and wisdom will mean you are in good hands.

Testimony #15 - "Mother is Always Tired"
I want to thank you for changing my life by introducing me to wheatgrass. I have always been into health and nutrition but had not been exposed to the power of wheatgrass juice and now I know what it feels like to be "addicted" to something. Every morning I have to get my fix and I never thought that a few ounces of the magic green juice could make me feel so incredible. As a mom of two active little boys (2 1/2 and 11 months) I was always tired of trying to keep up with them. Now, after my morning drink of wheatgrass juice they have a hard time keeping up with me. I no longer require coffee or caffeine to jump start my day, I simply press my wheatgrass and I'm good to go. As most moms can contest, when you get pregnant you get "mommy brain" which never goes away. Now that I have started wheatgrass I have mental clarity and can actually remember what I ate for dinner the night before. In addition, I have more energy, sleep better at night and have an overall sense of well being. My husband (who is a skeptic when it comes to these types of things) is the one who, after talking with Jack, said that we were going to try it and he is now a wheatgrass junkie too. For those who may be on the fence about wheatgrass, I would encourage anyone to just try it and after that you will become addicted like me and my family. We are very thankful to you, Jack, for changing our lives and making us feel so wonderful. Keep up the good work and keep spreading the knowledge about the magic juice.
Thank you again!
My husband and I both began our experience with wheatgrass at the beginning of 2008. I loved it instantly although my husband did not love it until he began feeling many benefits:

I went into my first experience of wheatgrass juice with no idea of what it was or what it might do for my body. I had no expectations.
Within one minute of drinking the wheatgrass juice my sinuses completely opened up! I could feel the drainage happening. For the first time in 10 years I could smell everyday odors again!
I have lived with tree and pollen allergies for most of my 42 years. I used to take Claritin D daily. With wheatgrass, I take 1-2 Claritin D pills a month and feel amazingly well and smell things I had been missing for years!
Wheatgrass Testimony #1
I have lung cancer. I have been drinking wheatgrass for about four weeks. Since I have been drinking wheatgrass I have gotten off most of my cancer medication. I lacked luster and now I have more energy. My blood pressure is now normal. It was 180/120 before I started drinking wheatgrass. I have been a long time smoker and wheatgrass has lessened my desire to smoke. The first time I visited Jack I had a hard time walking from my car to his house. Now I'm walking much better and my appetite is back! The only thing I have changed in the last month has been my drinking of wheatgrass, a total of 6 oz per day.
LATE BREAKING NEWS FLASH: Yesterday I noticed my three goldfish were belly up and appeared to be dead. Upon closer examination two fish were dead and one was close to death. I decided it wouldn't hurt, so I put some wheatgrass juice in the fish bowl. When I came back the fish was revived and swimming merrily. From what Jack tells me it was the additional oxygen from the wheatgrass juice that revived "Pixie."
Thank you for introducing us to the wonders of wheatgrass! Since the three weeks we have been using it, we have lost a total of 16 pounds. Our energy level has increased greatly and so has my enthusiasm for life!
Thank you again,
I'm a first time user of Wheatgrass so I thought you might be interested in hearing how my body has responded to 3 weeks of consuming one to two ounces every day prior to breakfast.
Not bad for just one shot of wheatgrass a day! What would happen with two? And this is after only 3 weeks! I'm sure many positive changes are taking place internally that I am not yet aware of. I'll keep you posted!

Wheatgrass Testimony #5
Here's the story: I know none of you our there EVER drinks too much wine so this information is probably wasted on you, but I'm going to tell you this anyway because you might know someone who knows someone who might drink too much someday. Last night my husband and I shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed it so much that we shared another. This is not difficult math - one half plus one half equals one whole. I don't remember too much about last night, but my husband woke up with his glasses still on. I don't know how I managed to keep my flip-flops on all night, but I did. When I came out of the bedroom this morning, our roommate was already up and juicing the wheatgrass. Wheatgrass does not smell very good, especially if you have a queasy stomach. I was going to skip the "grass" this morning but you can imagine how pushy a roommate can get when they are teasing you about your indiscretion. I gave in. It was difficult to swallow but down it went. It was not long before I got a splitting headache that lasted all of three minutes. When the headache disappeared, so did the hangover. My husband does not do wheatgrass because he does not like the taste (just add apple juice and it is fine!). He is a salesman and our home is in his "area" this week. He has been home twice already to get ice water and aspirin and it's not even noon! He is miserable.
I feel much better now than before wheatgrass came into my life. I have emphysema and it's not easy to breathe sometimes; it's much better now. I had pitted edema. My doctor had me on a diuretic and an inhaler. I still take the inhaler - half as much - but I question whether I need it at all. My ankles are no longer swollen and I'm back doing my morning walks. My attitude has improved and I'm not hungry all the time so I'm losing weight. I sleep better at night so I have much more energy during the day. And it's only been SIX WEEKS! I'm functioning!!! If you are still wondering if you should do the "wheatgrass thing" stop wondering! Thanks for listening!
